Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
It is well known that the macroscopic properties of materials can be significantly affected by the microstructure evolution, which can be induced by mechanical stresses, thermal loads, the bombardment of high-energy particles, and so on. This Special Issue aims to present the state-of-art progress in microstructure evolution and its connection with mechanical behavior and thermal properties. This Special Issue welcomes studies with multiscale simulation techniques such as atomic scale modeling, phase field modeling, finite element method, fast Fourier-transform simulation, data-driven simulation, and image-based modeling. We are open to various types of advanced materials, including but not limited to advanced structural materials with point, line, and planar defects, nuclear materials after irradiation, and composites of polymer blends. Finally, we would like to stress that this Special Issue is highly inclusive. All studies contributing to the predictive design of advanced structural materials through numerical modeling will be appreciated. It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript within the aforementioned scope. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
